INSTALLATION
The application of ARDEX Torch Applied Membranes
should be carried out by an accredited applicator.
Installation shall be strictly in accordance with the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
Acceptable substrates to which ARDEX Torch Applied
Membranes is to be installed must be properly prepared
prior to membrane installation.
ARDEX Torch Applied Membranes may be used in various
combinations to produce a variety of specifications
tailored to suit the individual waterproofing need.
The exact specification will depend on functional and
economic requirements. Advice should be sought for
suitable specification from ARDEX.

Materials used shall be as previously specified. When the
surface is suitably prepared a large fully vulcanised Butynol
sheet or sheets can be unrolled and spread over the
prepared area and allowed to remain in this position for
approximately one hour to relieve stresses induced by
manufacture and storage. If necessary for ease of
handling, these sheets can be supplied in varying sizes
and vulcanised on site using an ARDEX vulcanising
machine or using seam tape with ARDEX WPM 299
seam primer.
The Butynol sheet shall be set out in the exact position in
which it will be finally required and whilst it is held firmly in
place it shall be folded back at least one metre from the
roof’s surrounding parapet or wall to allow the application
of adhesive to that area of the exposed substrate.
ARDEX WA 98 Adhesive may be applied to the substrate
and the corresponding area of BUTYNOL sheeting which
may then, when the adhesive is touch dry, be worked back
into its required position avoiding wrinkles and the inclusion
of air bubbles.
Upon completion of the detail work, parapets, drains and
rainheads etc a layer of rounded gravel 30-40mm should
be applied up to 50mm deep, over a layer of Geo Textile
Fabric for protection of the Butynol sheet.
Care must be taken at outlets to ensure the ballast cannot
enter or cause a blockage that prevents rainwater from
leaving the roof area. Maintenance paths should be
created to air-conditioning or roof plant with concrete tiles.
Effects on the membrane in areas of high wind can be
eliminated by stabilising the ballast with cement. Dry

cement should be broadcast over the 30-40mm gravel
with a broad mouth shovel and left to hydrate or lightly
sprayed with water to set off.
If possible a water test should be carried out prior to the
application of ballast.
